English Premier League giants Arsenal are interested in signing Wolverhampton Wanderers’ star striker Diogo Jota in the summer transfer window. The North London-based club have been going through a difficult campaign where they are currently placed on the ninth position of the league table with 40 points after 28 matches, eight behind fourth-placed Chelsea with a game in hand.
It is believed that the Gunners’ hierarchy has conceded that they will have to sell their prized assets if the club could not cement their spot in the UEFA Champions League next season.
Therefore, as per Daily Mail, Arsenal are interested in making a move for the 23-year-old in the summer transfer window for a purpose of squad rebuilding for the future campaigns.
The Portugal international first joined Wolves on a loan deal from Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid and later it became permanent for a sum of €14 million in the summer of 2018.
Since then, the versatile striker has represented his current club in 120 matches in all competitions where he has managed to score 43 goals and provided 19 assists.
In the ongoing campaign, Jota has been in inspirational form for Wolves where he has already netted 15 times and provided six assists in just 37 appearances in all competitions.

El Clasico hero reveals he ‘had three days’ to choose Real Madrid over Barcelona
Real Madrid’s El Clasico hero Vinicius Jr. revealed in a recent interview that he almost joined Barcelona in 2017, before making the decision to sign for their arch-rivals within three days.
Speaking to FourFourTwo, Vinicius said, “It was right after I came back from the 2017 South American Under-17 Championship in Chile, that rumours started saying that Barcelona and Real Madrid were interested.”
“There were already a lot of rumours in the press also, but I never believed them.”
“Eventually it happened: both Real Madrid and Barcelona put offers on the table and I had only three days to make my decision.”
“I always wanted to play for the greatest club, so that’s why I chose Real,” he said.
“My parents visited both clubs and liked them more. It matched with what I already wanted, and I felt their project was better for me,” the Brazilian added further.
“They give a lot of minutes to the younger players, like me, and were going through an outstanding period of success in the Champions League back then.”
“Fortunately, I played a lot of games in my first season,” the 19-year-old went on, before concluding:
“Now I have surpassed 50 matches for Real Madrid – few players achieve that at such a young age.”
Roberto Carlos: I wanted Neymar at Real Madrid a long time ago
Real Madrid and Brazil great Roberto Carlos wanted Neymar at the LaLiga giants long ago.
Roberto Carlos revealed he would have liked Brazil star Neymar at Real Madrid a “long time ago”.
Neymar joined Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona in 2017, but has been linked with a return to Camp Nou and a possible blockbuster switch to Madrid.
Carlos, a Madrid and Brazil great, said he wanted Neymar at the Santiago Bernabeu long ago.
“If it were up to me, [Neymar] would already be here a long time ago, but life is not how one would like it,” Carlos told Fox Sports Radio.
“These great players always have to play for the best clubs in the world. Real Madrid today is a reference for any player.
“Do you want to win the Champions League? Come to Real Madrid.”
— Neymar Jr (@neymarjr) March 14, 2020
Madrid’s current left-back, Marcelo, has been out of favour with Brazil, with his last international appearance coming at the 2018 World Cup.
Carlos hopes the 31-year-old can eventually make a return for the national team.
“Everyone deserves a new opportunity and I think Marcelo is growing again to be the Marcelo I saw play, with joy, who does things that only he can do on the field,” he said.
“I hope he returns to the national team and disputes the position with Filipe [Luis], Alex Sandro and Renan Lodi.”
